My son and I left the bustling town of Trinity on a mid-morning in July and ascended the hill to the uppermost viewpoint, enjoying the company of birds and butterflies. We lingered at the top to enjoy the view of Trinity and the surrounding area...More

This trail should take about 30-45 minutes depending on how long you want to enjoy the view. We did the upper trail loop, tough when heading all the way to the top but the rest of it was fairly easy.

The walk to the top takes about 5-10 minutes, super easy. I would definitely recommend it for the spectacular view of trinity. Great photo opportunity.

The trail head is well marked but the trail is quiet with the best view of Trinity. Very quiet. Do the connecting trails as well. Moderate steepness.

The upper gun hill trail is simply amazing! It's quite a lot of walking and walking uphill for the most part but the view is more than worth it. You'll have a 360 degree view from the top of the hill with views of the...More

Hi - It takes about 20 minutes or so. Some sections are a little steep, but otherwise a very pleasant walk. There's parking on the street at the foot of the trail.
